Lambeau Construction On Schedule


The new north scoreboard is in place at Lambeau Field.

With just over five months until the rededication of Lambeau Field, the $295 million renovation continues to operate on schedule and according to budget, project director Stuart Zadra of Hammes Co., said Wednesday.

The exterior of the stadium's north end, which was open for the 2002 season, has been entirely enclosed, and the interior is 80 percent complete.

Standing tall above the north end zone is a new scoreboard and replay screen, and an identical scoreboard system is starting to be installed in the south end zone.

Two times larger than the old video boards, Zadra said the picture quality is also much improved -- like switching from a standard picture tube television to a plasma screen, he said.

Beneath the north scoreboard, the outdoor and indoor club seat areas are quickly developing, while within the bowels of the stadium, the new Packers Hall of Fame is taking shape.

At approximately 25,000 square feet, the new hall of fame space is roughly 6,000 square feet larger than the previous facility, but an improved layout will allow the exhibit space to double.

Within the Atrium, the concrete floor that has sat bare until now is being covered in a finish to further complete the room.

Zadra said approximately 400 workers are on the Lambeau Field site right now. That's up from a workforce of 200 that got the project through the winter, but far lower than last summer's peak of 1,100.
